Ladies I would like some feedback from those of you who are 166cm tall where is your happy weight, I have lost a lot of weight so far but still got some to loose.

I have done the whole BMI calculator but with such a large range would like to hear some feedback to give me a better idea, ps I have extremely large boobs and always have son even though I have lost weight they have stayed the same

The BMI calculator isn't the best judgement of an individual's health. Please don't base your life choices on it.

To answer your question, in a magical world I'd be happy to go back to being 65-70 kg like I was in my mid 20s and pre-kids, but it's just not happening. I'm in my early 30s and can't seem to get below 83 kg, which I've mostly made peace with. I don't want my kids (2 girls) to grow up thinking that a negative body image is the default, and that hating my body and trying to diet and shrink myself is the goal as a woman. My body works, it walks and swims and plays, it cuddles and dances, it's a good body. That's more important to me than whether I've cracked the 80 kg mark.

 Thanks, I've had my thyroid checked a few times over the years as my mum's has thyroid issues and so far nothing has come up. But I'll keep it in mind.

 I swear I could have written this comment. I on the other hand do have thyroid issues and take daily medication to balance out my thyroid levels but even so, can't get below 80kg - I sit anywhere between 82 - 86 on any given day. Very frustrating.

I'm 166cm and feel most comfortable around the 60kgs mark. I currently am sitting around 79 and it sucks. But I'm working on that and hope to reach the low 60s by this time next year.

 Good luck on your journey x

I am 21

 Sounds like you need to get your bra size re-measured. At 170 cm tall and 60 kg your band size shouldn't be 18. Go to a place that only sells bras/intimates and ask them for a fitting :) You don't have to buy, you can tell them you'll think about it, if you want to.

I’m 155cm and after babies settled at 50kg. Over the last year I’ve gained 8kg which doesn’t sound a lot but on my short body it’s really noticeable. I’m still in the healthy range but I felt so much better at 50kgs. Will only gain more as I have Hashimotos so my metabolism isn’t really great anymore.

Im 164cms
Im happy
Size 10-12

 Thanks for the feedback because according to the BMI calculator I could go as low as 51 as high as 69 for me I felt 51 was to small so was hoping for advice

I'm 164 and my happy weight is 55kgs. We don't hold weight well. I'm 60kgs now and had a few "are you pregnant?" Comments. We (mum and sisters) all can't carry alot of weight.

I’m 67 and my happy weight was 70-80 kgs, I’m passed that years ago unfortunately 😭

I’m 167. Currently 81kgs but would like to be 70.
I also have big boobs
